Hi everyone! I just wanted to share an article in Peekaboo Magazine about my baby, Mavia! 10 years ago I wrote a story about Mavia , sharing my experience as a mother of a child with NF and they asked me to do a follow up piece! I was reluctant at first as 2018 was one of our toughest years and I really have struggled with depression since her brain surgery and trying to be strong for my daughter. Truth is, it’s very hard when you see what NF has done to your child and what it continues to do, however I am reminded daily that Mavia is a fighter and she is happy, and bc of that i have only to be grateful and to give all of my love in abundance to this amazing being who has truly touched my soul and enriched our lives in ways I could only dream up. She is a blessing, and reminds me each day that life may give us challenges but we keep rising and we keep moving forward… we live for the little things and the joyful moments.
This year I am starting a creative 2019 dedicated to my children as a reminder of the love they have brought me!

St.Charles Missouri is a lively little place and this festival makes it even more so! If you haven’t been to the Festival of the Little Hills you should go! The music line up is amazing and I have thoroughly enjoyed jammin out and dancing with my daughter Mavia.
What I love the most is the enthusiasm for my art! Lots of happy faces buying my happy art makes this artist HAPPY!
Working on some ideas and I’ve been just doing some watercolor sketches to help my juices get flowing. I have had a creative block for the last couple months… longest it’s ever been, but I find when I can relax and just play with watercolor it helps to relax my brain and let go so I can just play.
